Follow the money!!!!
Eating Halal meat is not the biggest insult. What pisses me off is that Muslim companies and employees are getting the butcher and meat distribution money and jobs. In this awful economy when you eat Halal meat this means some Christian meat workers lost their jobs to make way for this “wonderful” Halal meat
So, a spray bottle full of a 50/50 mixture of vodka and bacon fat might be a good thing to carry so as to “baptize” such products.
Think of it as a twofer
Interesting. This is more humane than their treatment of beheading victims...
I have no problem with the method of slaughter, which is very similar to kosher.
But I do have a problem with eating food that has been offered in sacrifice to Allah.
At the Council of Jerusalem, as described in the Book of Acts, it was agreed that gentiles need not be circumcized or follow most Jewish ritual customs. But there were some exceptions.
Here is the gist of it:
For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things;
That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.
I’ve had to return steaks to two different stores $9.00 to $l2.00 recently because you can’t cut ‘em, you can’t chew ‘em! Even tenderloin has too much connective tissue! I just bought some from Costco, and they are delicious! When someone does something right, they should be rewarded.
This thread is an embarrassment. Kosher and Halal don’t offend me.
If they offend you, I have two words of advice:
This creeps me out. Glad we didn’t renew our membership when it expired. I consider the stamp to be a warning label.
Still boycotting Costco due to Erik Scott.
At least the pork isn’t halal!
Bye, bye COSTCO.
Yesterday was the last time you saw me.
That should have been “Since” instead of “Unless”...
That’s what I get for revising my statement...
I have a plan.
Go to Costco.
Get all the bacon you can. Maybe some good ham too.
Put it ON TOP of the halal stuff.
(Works best if some muzzie is watching)
I think St. Paul had something to say about this since in his day in some towns the meat that was available was all sacrificed to the pagan gods.
“COSTCO has admitted to several Islamic groups that their lamb is sacrificed according to Islamic Standards...”
That mean they raped a child and stoned a woman over the meat before packing it for sale?
Thank you for this information. A few days ago my wife bought a $33 lamb roast from our local Costco. She was going to cook it tonight. I told her about this post. When she checked the roast, sure enough it had arabic writing on it, indicating halal. She just took it back, got a refund and told the manager why she was returning it. No halal in this house.
“beware, you might be eating meat offered to ALLAH!”
Does that make it taste different?
Does it make the meat less nutritious or gratifying?
I eat regular meat and even kosher once in a while, should I stop eating the kosher meat?
I might go for some AHALAL pork. That’s where the hog’s butt is pointed toward Mecca ...
Saying Grace thanks the true God for the meal.
God trumps Satan any day.
